Can't install Epson WF-2630 printer
« on: 08. April 2016, 16:52:01 »

i have a new printer the Epson WF-2630, i'm trying since days to installing it over wifi, on my manjaro-xfce system, but it will not work.

I searched explicit for a driver for the WF-2630, but there is nothing in the AUR or anywhere, Epson write on there homepage, the driver is included in this package "epson-inkjet-printer-escpr  1.6.4-1".

So i installed it and when i go in settings -> printer-administration i can see my printer as networkprinter with IP.. and by the connections i can select, IPP or LPD/LPR, but when i go forward, comes this message "
When operating CUPS An error occurred: "success".??

but cups is enabled and started like described in the wiki.

when i try to adding the printer directly over cups webinterface, i get the info "forbidden"

Can't find the error :-\

It would be wonderfull when anybody can help me with this wiry problem

The clue is in your post: escpr
Code: [Select]
yaourt -S epson-inkjet-printer-escpr
For the scanner you need to install iscan:
Code: [Select]
sudo pacman -S iscan
Some scanners require data files (firmware):
Code: [Select]
sudo pacman -S iscan-data
There are also some more plugins for iscan in the AUR:

Including the one required for scanning over a network:
Code: [Select]
yaourt -S iscan-plugin-network
Note: Do not use the auto detected dns/sd listing in cups, this hasn't worked for quite some time. You will need to add the printer manually using it's ip address.
